“With spring in full bloom, this shoot to celebrate motherhood came exactly at the right moment. We captured Roos, who is a the proud parent of the cutest little boy, and only two months away from welcoming her second! She and her husband are both Dutch nationals who’ve been living in the DC area for almost a decade, and it was such an honor to capture her at this important time in her life.
There is something so special about this season, and you just can’t help but smile at all the new life and colors blooming all around. Washington DC is beautiful year round, but it’s no doubt at its peak when all the infamous cherry blossoms start to bloom. My favorite spots to capture them are along the Potomac river, not far from the Tidal Basin but slightly away from the crowds.
Inspired by the blossoms, Rose wore a blushing ballerina gown by Badgley Mischka that blended perfectly with the peaking trees. The beautiful breeze helped show off the elegant flow of her gown this perfect afternoon!” Audra, Photographer
